the recent mass shootings in colorado and kconnecticut have people calling for new gun control laws nationwide. now an east bay lawmakers says she believes one key may be better regulation of the sale of bullets. nbc bay area's marianne favro joins us in our newsroom with more on this newly proposed california bullet bill. >> reporter: raj this would make sweeping changes to help prevent criminals from stockpiling bullets and require everyone to jump through a lot more hoops first. the massacre in newtown and other mass shootings have prompted a call for big changes to help curb gun violence and today a california legislator is answering that call with a proposal to put stricter regulationses on ammunition sales in california. >> when 2,800 californians were killed last year due to gunfire
6:28pm
and it was the bullets that killed them, buying bullets should not be easy. buying deadly bullets should receive the same scrutiny as the purchase of guns. >> reporter: today assembly member nancy skinner unveiled assembly bill 48 to more closely regulate ammunition sales requiring bullet buyers to show i.d. it would require ammo dealers to be licensed, and it would require ammo sellers to report all sales to the department of justice. ken james supports the tighter restrictions. >> bullets you can go into any store and buy bullets and the sale is not recorded. >> reporter: as a new bill aids to curb gun and ammunition sales across the state, some are questioning why this new gun shop is now open for business. templar sports open and employees say sales have been steady. that's what scares this mother of two. >> it's just the timing.

given everything that's happened in connecticut, it makes you pause and question the timing and what the screening process was through the town council. >> reporter: we talked to one customer who didn't want to be on camera. he says he's glad to see the gun store open in his town and has no concerns about its impact on the community. >> this it gun shop has a high-priced premium compared to other gun shops in the area. it's not a place you're going to want to go if you're up to no good. >> reporter: whether your focus is on bullets, guns or gun shops, the debate will continue. the so-called bullet ban would ban kits that convert clips into high capacity magazines. marianne favro, nbc bay area news. >> all right, thank you, marianne. continuing on the subject, it turns out gun sales have been soaring for years, but does owning your own gun help actually reduce crime? an eye raising report by "the sacramento bee" found
6:30pm
californians have purchased millions of guns over the last decade. at the same time gun related injuries and deaths have dropped. in tonight's reality check, sam brock goes behind the numbers to see if there's really a relationship between increased gun ownership and lower crime. >> jessica, it's an argument that has been made for years now. it's come back to light in newtown, armed with well intentions and everybody is safe, so the logic goes. inc california we had our lowes homicide rate in 45 years in 2011. gun sales reached a 20-year high. while the two statements are 100% fact, they hard ly tell th entire picture. as you probably know, firearm sales across the country have spiked. the trend that's been playing out in california the last three years where sales have been climbing but over the last decade it turns out californians have purchased fewer guns than they did in the decade prior to that. according to the doj california averaged 406,000 gun sales
6:31pm
annually between 2002 and 2011 compared with 452,000 guns sold each year 1892. and when were the banner years for gun sales? take a look at that. california peaked in 1993 when the homicide rate was 1 it.9%. the second highest year on the list, when the homicide rate dipped to 4.8%. and the third highest year in 1994. some 600,000 weapons and saw a homicide rate of 11.5%. so what do these numbers tell us? that the crime rates have been dropping over time in california regardless of gun sales. the total amount of violent crime is down in california like it is for the rest of the country. but here is one final telling he fact of the homicides committed in this state the last ten years, every year the percentage committed by firearms is between 71% and 74%. guns might make it safer and
6:32pm
crime is down in california but there is no hard statistical data that proves one of these statements directly links to the other. sam brock, nbc bay area news. back to you. >> okay, sam, thank you. new details about the mass shooting in kcolorado. relaxed and detached. those are some of the details emerging describing james holm moments after police say he opened fire in that packed colorado movie theater. his preliminary hearing got under way today. officers held back tears as they recounted the horror of that day inside the aurora, colorado, movie theater. 12 people died. 70 others were injured. they said he was very relaxed after the shooting and told them his apartment was bobby rapid. he faces the death penalty. president obama appears ready for battle after appointing a republican to be the next defense secretary. the president has nominated former republican senator chuck hagel l. ironically the biggest opposition may come from hagel's own party. several republicans are attacking hagel for criticizing
6:33pm

at school by teacher craig chandler. the alleged abuse came to light after another parent called police. a jury convicted the school's principal last month, failing to report the alfwalegations to police. we uncovered a federal law was also violated by the school district. one that's supposed to be enforce enforced by the department of education. the law requires schools have policy in place and a trained coordinator to handle abuse complaints. the coordinator's contact information must be made public. we found at the time of the allegations he evergreen elem t elementary school district wasn't following this law. do you believe that some of these children would not be victims right now if the school district had simply followed the law? >> without a doubt. >> no doubt in my mind. >> bob allard are bay area attorneys separately representing alleged victims in civil caseses against evergreen

6:44pm
>> it was a colossal failure not to conduct an adequate investigation when it had complaints in its hands involving young children. >> reporter: noreen farrell is with equal rights advocates. she filed a request from evergreen asking for proof following title 9. she is still waiting for answers, and so are we. for the past two months, the district has dodged our questions. >> i'm with nbc bay area. >> reporter: we met with the souped kathy gomez outside her office. we've been trying to get in contact with you for more than a month now. >> right. and i think i directed you to our attorney. >> reporter: yes, and he's not answered any of our questions. >> i'm sure he will. >> reporter: well, again, we have not had any of our questions answered. why can't you answer simple questions about what your policy is and whether or not anyone has been trained on title 9? >> he will answer those questions for you. >> reporter: do you not know those answers? do you not know those answers? for educators to stick their heads in the sand about sexual abuse of minors and title 9 is a
